The Leadership Lunch Club ℠ (LLC) offers busy leaders in business and non-profit organizations in the Grand Traverse region an opportunity to learn cutting edge leadership and business practices with minimal time and investment. The principles are gleaned from local and regional business leaders who have applied some of the same principles contained in leading business and leadership books with a high degree of success.  Implementing even one of the ideas from these meetings into your organization could result in huge returns for you as a leader and for your organization. The Lunch Club series offers:

  • Frequent appearances by local, regional, and national leaders, speakers, authors, and business owners who will share practical examples and tips on how they are integrating featured principles in their organization.
  • Brief presentation reviewing a new or classic leadership or business book authored by an acclaimed business leader and/or researcher.
  • Brief written review of the featured book.
  • An opportunity to purchase a copy of the featured book at a 10% discount off retail if purchased at the meeting.
  • A brief Q & A at the end of the meeting
  • A great lunch in the convenient and comfortable setting of the Traverse City Country Club.
